  1. Ana najri

    Great taste and refreshing



    Just wanted to add that in Greece at least no Tzatziki is without the garlic ;-) so cucumbers, yoghurt, oil and garlic ;-)

  3. Madhumeeta

    I forgot to mention the name of this dish in India. It is known by the name “Cucumber Raita” or “kakdi chi Koshimbir”.Fresh cilantro sprinkled on the top adds up to the taste and gives nice garnishing effect.

  4. Madhumeeta

    This dish with a slight variation is very common in India with a different name though. I would like to share that variation , you can give it a try. Cut the cucumber into small pieces add yogurt to it and a pinch of sugar and salt to taste. Take a small pan and pour some oil in it add Cumin seeds then a pinch of asafoetida and a small green chilly ( remove the seeds) put this on that cucumber yogurt mixture.

    I make a variation of this as well. I use the greek yogurt, but also add a tablespoon of mayonaise to the dressing, a dash of garlic salt, and a squeeze of lemon juice. I use a mandolin to slice the cucumbers thin and also slice some red onion the same way. I put the cucumbers in layers in a bowl and salt each layer to help draw out the water. I sprinkle with a little white vinegar each time as well. (The vinegar seems to help take some of the edge off of the red onion) I let this sit for about an hour and then drain for about a half hour. This salad is a favorite in our house and I make it at least once a week.
